    Re: Never say Never......

    Woolfe:

    Totally off topic but how are Evoras selling in UK?  Local demo here has just dropped by 21%!


    Its anecdotal but I have only seen a handful and all but one of those because a friend lives near Hethel!  The one off was in the queue for a ferry so I went over to have a chat with the driver, who turned out to work for Lotus.  He said it was a great car but when I said I had a Cayman S he said he would prefer the Porsche.  The gist of his arguement was similar to my Elise experience - the core of the car is well engineered and reliable but the peripherals are a bit flimsy and rubbish.    I also think its too expensive


    Re: Never say Never......

    Well our much beloved Boxster has been sold by the dealer, but he tells me that the car has gone to a good home, a retired solicitor who traded in a seven year old Boxster 986 which the chap bought new from them. It is one of the best 986's the dealer has seen in a long time, so hopefully our Boxey will be well looked after. Here's hoping!

    Five days to the Cayman and counting.......Smiley

    No firm date yet.  My deviant LHD tendencies sent me to the bottom of the list..  They reckoned a mid-Feb build with pick-up 1st week of March.  Not too bothered, though - spring is a good time to pick up a new cab and sell the current one...

    ...and March is a good time to get a new car delivered, so that you can prepare yourself (and the car) a bit before the track season starts again end of March / beginning of April......

    Thank you one and all for your kind wishes Smiley

    Here's the first two photos, unfortunately I was later leaving work than planned and by the time we got to the dealer and got through the formalities light was fading. I promise, more over the weekend!! Smiley

    I have to say that the brief 30 mile drive from the dealers home first impressions are amazing!! Smiley
